Firefox Sync: a bit of a fail

So I was setting up Firefox Sync, having used Google Sync for a while its nice.


On the first device no problem, then I move to the second device, which is not with me.


Fire up sync, and I see the best option is "I Don't Have the Device with Me"




So I click it, and then....



What? I need the recovery key? From the other device? But if I have the other device, then why would I click "I Don't Have the Device with Me"???

So I have to click "lost my other device"?


FAIL!

Mac OSX Mountain Lion removes "battery time"

If like me you prefer to have a time based estimate of how long your Mac's battery has left, or how until its charged, you won't like Mountain Lion so much, since that feature has been removed.



What you can do instead, is to use Slim Battery Monitor which works really well, and takes up much less menu bar space.
